A major milestone was reached early this morning as the new A11 Elveden bypass was partially opened.
Traffic was able to use the stretch of road for the first time with one lane open in each direction. Work will now start on a new southbound slip road. The work is expected to take around 12 weeks.
The dualling of the A11 between Thetford and Barton Mills is expected to be completed at the end of the year.
